How you treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
As soon as you become aware that you may have the problem, you should stop doing whatever you think is the cause and rest your wrist.
The condition occurs because the main nerve that runs from your arm to your hand, passes through the carpal tunnel and can become inflamed or damaged through the actions listed above. The rest is needed to let it recover. Other treatments can include:
- A wrist splint to keep the tunnel in place without stress. This can be particularly helpful at night.
- Steroid injections
- Surgery to release the nerve
